  1. And another update: As I discovered, the reason for malformed / small sized sleepimage is overwritten Cpu0lst table, if I drop or overwrite it, the sleepimage is always corrupt / 2gb in size.
  2. One little step ahead: I found out that SSDT.aml was causing problems with size of /var/vm/sleepimage, after removing it I was able to get more consistent size of 4GB that corresponds with size on my Macbook where sleepimage is always 1/2 of memory. Also, waking up from hibernation is more consistent now: I get grey hibernation logo with progress bar the the bottom (like in attached pic). progress bar fills up but then machine freezes there. I have USB mouse with LED inside and while progress bar fills up LED light is on but when machine freezes led is turning off, so seems like entire USB system gets shut down. There are no log entries into system.log after machine wakes up. Another interesting aspect is that when I power off / on the machine after freeze it goes through normal boot sequence but once OSX starts I am not present with usual login screen for all users, I get to input password for my user that was active when I put machine into hibernation. There are also all applications I had open but they are clearly freshly restarted. Anyone has a idea what could be happening? I attach my latest clover config as well as boot log. Thanks! shuttle_xh81_pack_2.zip
  3. Hi, I have a Shuttle XH81 barebone that has a trouble waking from hibernation. The configuration of machine is as following: H81 chipset i3-4160 CPU UEFI Mode OSX 10.12.4 Clover r4049 Custom SSDT generated using ssdtPRGen.sh v15.6 org.netkas.driver.FakeSMC 1737 + Sensors RealtekRTL8111.kext What happens is: Sleep wake is OK but when I set hibernationmode to 25 and go to sleep / reboot clover detects that machine was hibernated and attempts to start but this ends up in either black screen or partially corrupt desktop image + hard freeze. I have tried all kind of darkwake settings, strictHibernate etc. to no avail. One thing I find weird is that /var/vm/sleepimage is always precisely 2gb in size, my machine has 8gb memory and I tried to exhaust it by opening many apps, still, sleepimage stays at 2gb Attached is a package containing: clover config.plist ioreg output pmset output clover debut log for booting hibernated image SSDT.aml shuttle_xh81_pack_1.zip
  4. Update: I have up on trying to fix Sabertooth P67 and replaced them with GA-Q77M-D2H boards that seem to work on a quick glance.
  5. Wake via power button 1 minute after sleep with new DSDT made a entry: 2017-03-18 21:25:01.763940+0100 localhost kernel[0]: (AppleACPIPlatform) Wake reason: PWRB (User) 2017-03-18 21:25:01.763941+0100 localhost kernel[0]: (AppleACPIPlatform) Wake reason: PWRB (User) Wake after 15 min again powered off the machine and made no log entry. Another interesting observation: When machine wakes up properly I first hear fans, then see led blink in my mouse, then cdrom spin up and then see display. When machine turns off I first hear fans, then cd spin up and then it turns off. And one more thing, this is not limited to one machine, I actually have 3 Sabertooth P67 based hackintoshes and all of them show this symptom, so it is not a broken board or anything like that.
  6. No log entries exist for recent wakes, last 2 entries I see are: 2017-03-16 15:49:18.732347+0100 localhost kernel[0]: (AppleACPIPlatform) Wake reason: XHC HDEF EH01 2017-03-16 15:49:18.732348+0100 localhost kernel[0]: (AppleACPIPlatform) Wake reason: XHC HDEF EH01 Which is interesting because I *did* wake up machine today while doing tests in <15min window. I can understand why there are no entries when machine turns off but when I do wake up from blinking power led state, I should see an entry, no? P.s. clock is and was correctly set.
  7. Hi Hervé, Thank you, I tried it, when I remove CpuPm drop then nothing happens (all is the same, machine turns off on wake after 15+ min sleeps). When I remove Cpu0lst or both then machine powers off even when woken up immediately after going into sleep. So, Cpu0lst drop does allow machine to be woken up from <15min sleeps.
  8. Unfortunately, same behavior, I attach the two ioreg outputs, with with latest DSDT and one without. sabertooth_p67_ioreg.zip
  9. Hi Hervé, MaLd0n, Thank you for input. Hervé: You where right on P States and C States generation, KernelPm, machine sleeps now for prolonged time (blinking power light). Unfortunately.... while machine is sleeping for longer time now it will not wake up from sleep longer then 15min, the symptoms are: When I hit some button machine will power on the fans, spin up disks and then turn off. Quite a troublesome Motherboard that Sabertooth P67..... What I have done: Use my setup as in initial message (no DSDT, SSDT, kexts as listed) and removed P States, C States, KernelPm. Result: System sleeps for long time but will not wake up from 15+ min sleeps. Remove GenericUSBXHCI, rebuild cache. Result same as in 1 Replace FakeSMC, clover config and DSDT with ones provided by MaLd0n. Result same as in 1 Remove SSDT.aml, same result Put back SSDT.aml and try all possible darkwake settings, no help I attach my current setup: config.plist SSDT.aml DSDT.aml (the one from MaLd0n) Custom kexts in use: org.netkas.driver.FakeSMC (1421) com.insanelymac.IntelMausiEthernet (2.2.0) No others, I try to keep system as slim as possible (at expense of some functionality missing) until this one issue is resolved. Thanks! sabertooth_p67_17.03.2017.zip
  10. Hi, I have a system with following configuration: Asus Sabertooth P67 Motherboard, BIOS Version 3602 i5-3570 CPU Asus GTX 960 gfx Clover 4035 OSX 10.12.3 org.netkas.driver.FakeSMC (1372) net.osx86.kexts.GenericUSBXHCI (1.2.11) No other custom kexts are in place. By default sleep does not work on this machine at all but if I add SSDT.aml or DSDT.aml then I can put it down and wake it up, everything is peachy but after about 2 hours in sleep it would spin up it's fans for couple of seconds and turn off. This is something specific to OSX since machine sleeps well under Ubuntu for prolonged time periods. Here are my pmset settings: System-wide power settings: Currently in use: standby 0 Sleep On Power Button 1 womp 1 autorestart 0 hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage powernap 0 networkoversleep 0 disksleep 10 sleep 60 (sleep prevented by screensharingd) autopoweroffdelay 86400 hibernatemode 0 autopoweroff 0 ttyskeepawake 1 displaysleep 2 standbydelay 4200 I have tried many things to fix this issue, among those: Making DSDT using MaciASL + 'generic sandy bridge' patch Generating SSDT.aml Using DSDT + SSDT alone or together Using different darkwake settings Trying different pmset settings to no avail. Can anyone help me with this? I attach a zip with following files: config.plist from clover System DSDT.dsl: Clean DSDT without any patches ssdt.dsl and ssdt.aml, both output from clean (no dsdt) system using ssdtPRGen.sh v15.6 AppleIntelInfo output (generated after booting with SSDT.dsl from the step above) Thank you! sabertooth_p67.zip
  11. I only opened and replaced logic boards in 15 and 17 inch MBP's but from what I experienced: Forget it! It will not work. Dimensions of the board is one thing, but there are also tons of connectors and cables which lead to different places depending on revision and the plugs are different too!

    GTX260 performance

    Hi Folks, I have two Apple 2008 Mac Pros with the single quad core 2.8Ghz CPU, one has 8800 GT and another HD 2600 card. I also have a Hackintosh with: GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L Q9550 4x 2.833GHz, FSB1333 Asus GTX260 Gfx Board Both units run 10.6.1, the Hackintosh is booted using chameleon + PC EFI 10.5 + EFI String. The GTX260 is properly detected (system profiler) and accelerated (screen savers, expose speed and so on). In xBench, the Hackintosh has a edge over the Mac Pro in all benchmarks except GFX, there the picture is: Quartz Graphics: HD 2600 = 267.38 8800 GT = 228.11 GTX 260 = 211.92 OpenGL: HD 2600 = 113.08 8800 GT = 144.58 GTX 260 = 94.90 User Interface: HD 2600 = 347.09 8800 GT = 343.08 GTX 260 = 390.77 Is that really normal?
